High and Dry: Drugs in Canadian History. How can studying the past help us to understand better the recent legalization of cannabis or the opioid crisis today? This question drives the 2019W offering of HIST 420, which will focus on the history of drugs in Canadian history. From alcohol and tobacco to opium and marijuana, we will explore the social, cultural, political, and legal histories of drugs, the people who have used them, and their shifting regulation and (de)criminalization in northern North America.
